London Sinfonietta: Mica Levi: Under the Skin

Part of International Organ Series

A screening of Jonathan Glazer's intoxicatingly strange Under the Skin, accompanied by a live performance of the soundtrack by the London Sinfonietta. Under the Skin (2014) impressed critics with its uncomfortable portrayal of an otherworldly predator.

Mica Levi's beautiful, elemental and skewed music provided the intoxicating soundtrack to the film.

London Sinfonietta collaborated with Levi and her band Micachu and the Shapes in 2010 on Chopped and Screwed, the album that inspired Glazer to ask Levi to write this film score.

It has since catapulted her to international fame and earned a BAFTA nomination. With strains of Ligeti and Cage running through its hazy mix of digitally-processed and live sound, Levi's microtonal world is captivating – veering between sensuality and disquiet to compelling effect.

'Extraordinary' ***** (The Guardian)

'Astonishing' ***** (The Telegraph)

'Mica Levi's score ups the dread level: it sounds at times like a new electronic language being born or a subtle form of communication between aliens.' ***** (Time Out)
